Confessions of a Shopaholic ღ

I would like thank everyone for their very sweet comments about my dog Lucky. Am truly thankful for such great and lovely readers.

I have been inactive for the past week due to work and just feeling glum. Today though, I decided to get out of a rut and spend a d
ay shopping with my good friend Zara - a dear close gal pal whom I've known since my uni days. We've shared so much together, even scoured the streets of London. I would like give a cyber kiss and hug to her. She is truly an amazing person and dear friend.



We went shopping today and picked up a couple of nice pieces. Who would have thought that Sydney has such amazingly cute dresses. The cu
rrent obsessions are polka dots, florals and bows. A girl can never be to old to not like floral, bows and polka dots. At least for this girl, I know I will never tire of them.

Just finished watching Confessions of a Shopaholic and such a funny movie for all of you who wants a funny, light hearted chic flick, then check this one out! Amazing outfits and funny slapsticks. Be warned though, not to be take
n seriously. This has an important moral to the story though. Shopping, just like anything is something that one should not do in excess. Forgiveness, love, family, friendships and relationships of course are the main priority.



Why do we shop?

I have this theory why us girls turn to shopping more so than others. Something to do with upbringing and the past. For me, I was brought up with 4 other siblings and while growing up as lovely and amazing my parents were they were unable to get me the wonderful girlie dresses that I wanted (violin playing). So when I began earning my own money I began to go make up for the loss time by stocking my wardrobe with pretty and girlie things. The movie hit so close to home. What is your story? x

Moving along..

My outfit for the day.
Dress: Valley Girl
Sandals: Rubi Shoes
Belt: Chinatown

As a few of you may know, the holiday season in Aust
ralia is a scorcher. It is summer time and out comes the cotton dresses, sandals and sunnies. In particular, I am setting my eyes on the below and am waiting ever so patiently for the end of year sale where hopefully the below will be marked down in price. I just hope that my size will still be available. If not then sadly they were never meant to be mine.


For all who are specially lucky to have white Chr
istmas. Am so extra happy for you! Cardigans, jumpers and boots with bows are just divine!

Drool worthy sandals from Marc Jacobs are number
one on my list.




In the mean time though, no harm getting
guilt free pieces from the local shops and of course Target. Oh thank you Target for hiring fashions buyers to bring us these cute dresses such as the below.




Dress: Target - Free Fushion size 6
Bag: Dangerfield

Ok the below was not from Target but what I purchased earlier with gal pal Zara but didn't have a chance to try on at the shop as for some reason Target has a far better change room. Polka dot short sleeved dress with a button up back.


Dress: George St Sydney

That's all for now. What have you been up to this weekends? Christmas is just around the corner and I think this year will a great one. Have a great weekend! Til next time. x
